Carlos Boozer Wants to Stay in Utah

Perhaps coming to the realization that there’s not much of a market out there for him, Carlos seems to have had a change of heart about where to call home going forward: “Last summer, Carlos Boozer listed Miami and Chicago as potential places he’d like to play. On Tuesday, the Utah Jazz power forward mentioned an entirely different city far away from those two possible NBA homes. While a guest on ESPN’s ‘Jim Rome is Burning,’ Boozer told the popular sports host he’d be a happy camper if his NBA career continued in, yep, Salt Lake City. In fact, the current Western Conference player of the week said he hopes the Jazz are \very aggressive’ in their attempts to re-sign him after his six-year contract with Utah expires this offseason. ‘You know, this is a team I’m proud to be a part of,’ Boozer said, ‘and I hope it’s an option for me to come back and stay.’ That’s a far cry from last summer when Boozer spoke openly about being certain he would be traded before the 2009-10 season tipped off.”

    Oh Carlos, do you mean it?! Gee-willikers, that would be so super-swell! And you sound so sincere too, goshdarnit I may just have to believe you!

    i wonder if he’s aware that he’ll have to take a massive pay cut?

  • webstarr

    I wonder how many years in Utah it will take before Boozer ends up in the woods with a hunting rifle, skin tight jeans, and a cowboy hat…eventually leading to casual comments about hunting Mexicans

  • J-City

    He fleeced a blind man. Enough said.

  • a_whiteman

    In other words, if someone offers me 2 million more I’m gone

  • Jack Knife

    Exactly what a_whiteman said

  • Fat Lever

    The question is does Utah want Boozer? Doesn’t matter at all what Boozer wants.

    well there’s no blind owner for him to screw over in Utah, so he’s probably staying.

  • roman

    Who wants to play in Utah anyways. Hated them back when Jordan was killing Stockton & Malone-

  • webstarr

    everyone keeps pointing out that the Cavs owner was blind like boozer stole his wallet. he was still a grown man. verbal agreements mean nothing. not that boozer isn’t a complete b1tch a$$

  • dario

    yep, fredd an niQ nailed that one …

  • MikeC.

    @ albie1kenobi – I had a really funny comment about how the Jazz don’t have any blind owners for Boozer to screw over, then I read the comments and you beat me to it. I’d be way funnier if other people weren’t funnier first.

    Oh, what’s that? He went where?? DUKE!?! Oh, f*ck this guy.
